Well, I thought I had all my birthday cards made, but found myself lacking just one. So I've been scrambling this weekend to get a card done to send to my friend (whom I don't see often enough). I hope it will arrive in time for her to enjoy.
I used this week's Friday Sketch Challenge for my card and two of the Summer Tilda images. I pulled out some old retired SU designer paper called Darling Doodles and thought it looked festive enough to use for a birthday card. Thanks to someone in the Magnolia-licious Yahoo group for posting a chart of the SU colors and the Copic Markers that were closest to them. That was so helpful in getting this card under way.
Here is my card...
Here is a close up of my coloring:
When it came to doing the inside of the card, since I only had one image of Beach Tilda, I decided to use another summer image that has the same hair style. Ice Cream Tilda was just perfect, because what is better for a birthday celebration than ice cream?
I suppose I should have laid the card flat to take a better picture, but I have a three year old sitting right beside me, I mean RIGHT beside me and I just needed to get the picture taken.
Now that I have the card finished, it won't fit any of the envelopes I have, so, of course, I had to make one to match. It's not ornate, no hand stitching or anything, just a matching envelope with a space on the front for the address. I was in a huge hurry to get this done and deal with the boy!!!
Here are the Copic markers that I used to produce this card:
